I have customized Ubuntu distribution, along with several customization i
have also changed distribution name, it works well. Currently I use this
cutomized distro rootfs with Linux kernel  but whenever i do update-grub,
the auto-generated menu.lst file do have original distro name, My question
is grub read which file to determine distro name, as i want to customize it

Sample snippet from auto-generated menu.lst file

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.17-10-generic
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-generic root=/dev/sda5 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-generic

Look at title, it contains original distro name, it shows i missed some
file in orignal distro and grub still can determine original distro name
and show it in tile. So kindly guide how grub determine distro name...

Kind Regards,
Saqlain Abbas.
